Video phone sticks its neck out on HSN

Home Shopping Network introduces it

Engadget

Providing that you're not still calling home to ask for money, mom might actually appreciate a video phone for Mother's Day even if you're sporting the same mullet from college. And if she doesn't, you'll at least have a neat conversation piece in the "Ojo Shadow Video Phone" from WorldGate.

The device, which looks like a gangling-adolescent version of some long-necked laptops we've seen lately, is making its U.S. debut on the Home Shopping Network (don't laugh). Engadget points out that the $500 price for a pair might be a deal breaker, but don't change the channel just yet. We hear there are some great HSN deals coming up on oriental rugs.
